Clay Parker & Jodi James
Baton Rouge, LA artists Clay & Jodi return to Fort Stockton!
Clay Parker and Jodi James, both already established artists in their own right, have been fostering a new and assured voice as a duo. This new direction combines elements of traditional roots music and soulful harmonies delivered with the sincerity found in the early folk singer-songwriter movement. Independently, Parker and James have been solid staples in the Baton Rouge music scene, but their musical collaboration didn’t begin until the fall of 2014 when they wrote their first twelve songs together over the course of two weeks while located in different states. They’ve since worked relentlessly refining themselves as a duo and continue to tour the U. S. in support of their debut EP Clay Parker and Jodi James.
“Mutual admiration brought their talents together….James’ bluesier soul and straightforward songwriting blends with Parker’s poetic lyrics and bluegrass vibe for an Americana sound that slides in under the noise of today’s folk rock trend.” Kaci Yoder, 225 Magazine
